Bishop Roman Danylak 
(December 29, 1930 - October 7, 2012)

Biography at Catholic-Hierarchy.org

With a deep sadness, we relay to all our friends in different countries the news of His Excellency Bishop Roman Danylak's passing yesterday (October 7, 2012, 5:20 p.m.) in a hospital in Toronto, Canada after many years of severe suffering from diabetes and blindness. Only a few months ago, he had returned from his last visit to his native country of Ukraine and also the Vatican accompanied by a helper. We are especially grateful to His Excellency for being a Director of Mary's Touch By Mail for the past three years despite his illness. It seems to be a divine providence that the date of his death was October 7, a great feast of Our Lady and her Rosary as well as the spectacular and miraculous victory of the Christian forces against the overwhelming Turkish forces at Lepanto in 1571. Bishop Danylak has been a brave and powerful shepherd of the Church firmly loyal to the authentic Catholic Faith and fearlessly supportive of the Blessed Mother's work in Naju, Korea. We lost him on this earth, but gained him now helping us even more effectively from Heaven. We believe that, in Heaven, he will join with other powerful and heroic Church leaders such as Blessed John Paul II, Cardinal Jaime Sin of the Philippines, Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis, Archbishop Marcello Zago (the former Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples), Bishop John Jae-Sun Choi of Busan, Bishop Angelo Nam-Soo Kim of Suwon, and more, in making the facts of the Blessed Mother work in Naju widely known in the world and officially approved by the Church as soon as possible. Now it is up to us so ask and receive the help of these saintly giants in Heaven and work harder for the Triumph of Our Lady against evil and for the salvation of millions and millions of people in the whole world.

Julia Kim of Naju, Korea wrote the following on September 22, 1995

His Excellency Bishop Roman Danylak from Toronto, Canada, celebrated Mass on the mountain in Naju together with Fr. Joseph Finn from Ontario, Canada, and Fr. Aloysius Chang. There were 16 lay people attending the Mass. We received Communion in both species. When I received Communion, the Sacred Host in my mouth turned into a mixture of Flesh and Blood and became larger. I smelled a strong odor of Blood. The Sacred Host also began moving. One of the laymen saw this and reported to Bishop Danylak. The Bishop witnessed this phenomenon, followed by other people. A while later, Bishop Danylak instructed me to swallow the Eucharist. I swallowed the Eucharist with much difficulty, because it had become a lump of Flesh and larger. While we were in meditation, crying, I saw light radiating from above and heard the voice of Jesus which was dignified, majestic and yet loving.

My beloved little soul! The greatest treasure in My Church is My Mother Mary who is most holy. My Mother is the Queen of the Universe, the Queen of Heaven and your Mother. Therefore, My Mother Mary can love you, as I loved you, and can do anything that I can do through the grace from Me. Today My Mother, who is the Queen of Heaven and your Mother, is opening and showing My Heart through my little and unworthy soul to the Bishop who is trying to follow Me and My Mother like an infant so that he can make it known more widely that I am truly present in the Eucharist which is a sublime mystery of Faith and Love.

If my priests, who celebrate Mass everyday, truly believe and feel My Real Presence and live the sublime and amazing Divine Reality, numerous souls will be purified and live in the grace from My merciful Heart beyond expectations through this Real Presence of Mine. Make My Physical Presence known hurriedly. This world is now on the brink of destruction because of human degradation, apostasy and infidelity, but too many of my ministers are asleep. Thus, even my ministers are being misled by false prophets. The present disorders are tormenting Me and keep tearing apart My Heart. This also becomes a whip and keeps tearing apart My Mother's Immaculate Heart.

My little souls who have been called! You will experience misunderstanding and persecution in the Church which has been wounded and divided. But I will always dwell in you and encourage and help you at your side. Therefore, do not fear but make known with trust My living Presence in the Holy Eucharist. I have shown signs several times through my little soul to enlighten the many priests and numerous other children who say that they know My Real Presence and My breathing in the Eucharist with My Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, and yet do not really know it. But only very few children follow Me. Even many priests forget about the sublime simplicity of the Holy Eucharist, which is My Physical Presence, and of the Gospels which I teach, and they are trying to spread Me with deceptive talk and complicated reasoning. This is like throwing mud at simple people.

My beloved children! Do not reject My pleas which I make in this manner while being truly present in the Eucharist. If people do not want to acquire true understanding, do not follow My Will to bestow Love upon them, deny the Divinity and deny the Divine Origin (of God's revelations), then, they will face the anger of God the Father.

Because My Mother's loving and kind words for the past several centuries have been ignored, sin has reached a saturation point, even within the Church. Hurriedly live a consecrated life, praying and offering up sacrifices and penance so that you may be connected to the power that is indispensable for the eventual victory and, thus, do reparations for the most abominable sins of blasphemy that have been committed since early times. And if you follow My Mother Mary in order to restore My honor that has been trampled upon, you will not get lost, even in the dark maze of life in this world. My Mother Mary is the shortcut to Me, a shining dawn of My renewed Church, and the ark of a new covenant.

My children who are following Me and making Me known! Do not worry about what those who criticize you may be thinking, but pray, pray and spread (My messages). When God's Hands are upon you, the thoughts of those who criticize will change quickly like the clouds which dissipate in the sky. I bless you and all those who are dear to you.


I, Bishop Roman Danylak, Apostolic Administrator of the Eparchy of Toronto for Ukrainian Catholics in Toronto, Canada, and titular bishop of Nyssa, herewith solemnly testify that I concelebrated the Divine Liturgy of Holy Mass, with the Reverend Fathers Aloysius Chang, parish priest of the Kwangju Archdiocese in Korea, invited by me to assist during my visit to Korea, and Joseph Peter Finn, retired priest of the London Diocese in Ontario on Friday, September 22, 1995, at 5 p.m. in an open-air celebration on the grounds of the valley where a future church is to be erected, God-willing, to the honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Mother of God.

Following the Liturgy of the Word, I delivered a brief homily for the occasion. After the communion of the priests, Fr. Chang and I administered Holy Eucharist under both species to Julia Kim and the eleven others. As we continued to distribute Holy Communion to the others present, we heard the sudden sobbing of one of the women assisting at Mass. The Sacred Host received by Julia Kim was changed to living flesh and blood. Fr. Joseph Finn, who had remained at the altar during the communion of the faithful, was observing Julia; he noted that at the moment he turned to observe Julia, he saw the white edge of the host disappearing, and changing into the substance of living flesh.

Fr. Chang and I returned to Julia. The Host had changed to dark red, living flesh and blood was flowing from it. After Mass, Julia shared with us that she experienced the Divine Flesh as a thick consistency and a copious flowing of blood, more so than on the occasion of previous miracles of the changing of the host into bleeding flesh. We remained in silence and prayer; all present had the opportunity of viewing and venerating the miraculous Host. After some moments I asked Julia to swallow and consume the Host. And after the Mass Julia explained that the Host had become large and fleshy; and that she consumed it with some difficulty. The taste of blood remained in her mouth for some time. I then asked that she be given a glass of water, from the miraculous source of water nearby. As she drank the water, her finger touched her lips, and a trace of blood was visible on her finger. She rinsed her finger in the water and rank it.

In testimony of this, I append my signature, together with the signatures of all the witnesses present.
